    It's the end of something simple. And the beginning of everything else. Set in the fictional town of Capeside, MA,Dawson's Creek is the coming of age story of four friends on the verge of adulthood. Dawson, Joey, and Pacey are life long friends, whose lives start to rapidly change when a new girl, Jen, moves in next door to Dawson Leery and the foursome start high school. Along the way they are joined by two other newcomers to Capeside: Jack and Andie and, when they go to college, by Audrey. Often characterized by its intelligence, sharp wit, and SAT vocabulary, Dawson's Creek was created by Kevin Williamson. It was loosely based on his life, with each character incorporating a different aspect of himself. The show quickly launched the careers of its stars, turning them into world known celebrities and, in the words of The WB, defined a network. Dawson's Creek was filmed primarily on location in Wilmington, NC. Theme Songs: I Don't Want To Wait performed by Paula Cole and Run Like Mad performed by Jann Arden - Season 1 (international airings only) and Seasons 3-6 on DVD (except the series finale, when it played Paula Cole's song).

    "If you need help, then look no further. Angel Investigations is the best. Our rats are low..." "Rates!" "It says 'rats.' Our rates are low, but our standards are high. When the chips are down, and you're at the end of your rope you need someone that you can count on. And that's what you'll find here -- someone who will go all the way, no matter what. So don't lose hope. Come on over to our offices and you'll see that there's still heroes in this world." For over two centuries, Angelus was one of the most vicious vampires ever to walk the earth. Then he killed the wrong girl, and her grieving Gypsy family cursed him with the return of his soul, causing him to suffer remorse for all the hundreds of innocents that he had killed through the years. Now he goes by the name Angel, and he fights to protect the helpless from those who would prey upon them as he once did himself. After three years of living in Sunnydale, fighting alongside his girlfriend Buffy, Angel has moved to Los Angeles to continue the good fight. Aided by a few old friends and some new ones, Angel must take on vampires, demons, lawyers, and all of the other dark forces that Los Angeles has to offer.moreless

    The Crow: Stairway to Heaven

    The Crow: Stairway to Heaven

    Follow
    The WB (ended 1999)
    Exactly one year after his death, rock musician, Eric Draven, returns to earth in a symbolic and literal leap from the bridge that joins the Land of the Dead and the land of the living. Possessing the mystic powers of The Crow, he is neither living nor dead, searching for a way to right what has been wronged.

    The Crow: Stairway to Heaven continues the legacy of Eric Draven and expands on the mythology of the successful feature film franchise. Joined as soulmates, Draven and his girlfriend Shelly were inseparable — until they were brutally and senselessly murdered.

    Now, their souls cannot rest. Their romance endures through time and death, creating an incredible longing between the young lovers. Draven seeks redemption by helping others, fighting for those who cannot fight for themselves. Through each act of justice, he is taken one step closer to his own salvation.

    A foot soldier on the side of good, at Draven's core is a powerful force that transforms him into The Crow — his alter ego.

    Draven's return to Earth arouses both suspicion and curiosity from Daryl Albrecht, the police lieutenant who has never given up his crusade to solve the vicious crime that cost Eric and Shelly their lives.

    Eric also has other earthly allies. He and Shelly remain connected to Sarah, a 13-year-old kid who is streetwise beyond her years and who regarded the dead lovers as family. While her rebellious nature can be her worst enemy, she is the grounded voice of reality for Eric.

    Even a dead man needs to get a life. Although Eric Draven has been changed forever, he must exist, at least for now, in the world of the living.

    During the opening theme of the show, the voice-overs of Eric and Shelly say:

    SHELLY: People once believed that when someone dies, a Crow carries their soul to the Land of the Dead

    DRAVEN: But sometimes something so bad happens that a terrible sadness is carried with it and the soul can't rest

    SHELLY: Then sometimes, just sometimes, the Crow can bring the soul back to put things right

    DRAVEN: Things can never be right, my soul will never rest, until we are together again.

    The Crow: Stairway to Heaven was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.moreless

    Mission Hill

    The WB (ended 2000)
    Meet Andy French, a 24-year-old captivatingly lazy guy. Together with his nerdy teenage brother Kevin, he lives in a big city loft. However, these two new roommates couldn't be more polar opposite: Andy can never seem to settle on a particular job or girlfriend, while Kevin never gets anything lower than an A in school nor does he get a girlfriend. "The show takes place in the fictional city of Cosmopolis's equally fictional neighborhood of Mission Hill". It's a diverse place with interesting people living in it. Fellow roommates include Posey Tyler, the capricious girl who hides a secret dark side, and Andy's mellow best friend Jim Kuback who's well-connected to the hip downtown scene and has a luxurious job. Across the hall are Natalie, Carlos and their baby. Carlos is a painter, while Natalie is a professor. Next door are Gus and Wally, a gay couple in their 60s. Picked up in the fall of 1997 by the head of programming at the time Garth Ancier, Mission Hill didn't hit the air until long after he left the network. While that in itself is usually enough to kill a new series, achieving a two share on just its second outing certainly helped finish it off. One wonders what the WB was expecting after slotting it so awkwardly (first a "sneak preview" on Tuesday, then, two weeks later, a time period debut on Friday), but both Ancier's successor, Susanne Daniels, and Castle Rock agreed that having the series kick off a lineup consisting of The Jamie Foxx Show, The Steve Harvey Show and For Your Love was asking too much of it. So it went on hiatus after just two episodes. The WB claimed that they would bring it back in the spring, but when the time rolled around they didn't feel it was worth bringing back in season, nor did they feel it was worth pairing up with another long-delayed animated show they mishandled, Baby Blues. It came as a shock to the producers when the network called them up and said they had 15 weeks open that summer to burn off the 11 leftover episodes. Mission Hill was no longer asked to kick off a lineup consisting of The Jamie Foxx Show, The Steve Harvey Show and For Your Love. Now, it was asked to have a lineup consisting of The Jamie Foxx Show, The Steve Harvey Show and For Your Love kick off it. Four weeks of that and the WB kicked Mission Hill off the lineup once again. Finally in 2001, Cartoon Network bought the rights to the series, and aired it in order and in its entirety from May to August in 2002. The series ended up being 13 episodes, which Adult Swim has run on a number of occasions. The scripts were written for episodes 14-18 and 14-16 made it to animatic, but the show got pulled in production. IN addition, 14-16 almost made it to the Mission Hill DVD, but there were further complications.
